Vivisection scrapbooks

Abstract: 

Scrapbooks of printed material, mostly newspaper and magazine clippings, documenting the controversy over the role of animal vivisection in biomedical research. The scrapbooks focus heavily on the battle over proposed legislation in several states that would have criminalized animal vivisection of any sort. Contents are almost exclusively from American publications, but are from throughout the country.
